A nonprofit is giving away computers to low-income Peorians this week, but you must pre-register online
Some Peorians will have an opportunity to get a free computer this week.

The nonprofit will be giving out free Windows computers to eligible participants.
You are eligible for a free computer if you participate in SNAP, Medicaid, SSI, the Federal Public Housing Assistance or the Veterans Pension Benefit Program.
